Here’s my feature from Seattle’s Morning News on KIRO Radio about what Pearl Jam’s Home Show’s to benefit the homeless…a great clip of Eddie Vedder paying tribute to “Eddie” a homeless vet he befriended while they were making their first album! Did I mention Pearl Jam sounded phenomenal!
My interview with Dee Hillis from Solid Ground and Lhorna Murray who is a resident at Solid Ground, a mother and an artist. Lhorna was key in helping the community focus on the children who hadn’t dealt with the trauma of Charleena Lyles’ death. Working with Art with Heart they were able to get out some of the anger, pain and fear through art therapy…
To see the wonderful art created by the children at their “Lit” gallery showing check out: Lit
Had a conversation with lawyer Ann LoGerfo on Seattle Morning News from Columbia Legal Services about her client’s appeal victory in Seattle over the city towing his vehicle that also serves as his home as unconstitutional…the city is appealing the win and this case could go before the state supreme court.
Had a thrill this week interviewing Lenore Skenazy, author of Free Range Kids. Ten years ago this month, Lenore wrote about letting her son go on a subway in the Big Apple alone. The piece she wrote sparked outrage and also a new movement: letting kids have the childhood we had growing up…letting them Free Range!
Utah just passed the first Free Range legislation…Lenore gives all the details in my interview with her!
Also, I highly recommend this bit she did with the Daily Show a few years ago…
